It focuses on social justice but also covers a wide range of topics like environmental justice and pandemic recovery. “We were inspired about how the pandemic has brought a lot of pain and suffering into the world, so we decided to inspire our work about healing, mentally and physically,” said artist Cheyenne Anderson.

Crossroads for Women in Albuquerque has been chosen as the permanent home for the murals. It’s located on Martin Luther King Junior Ave. and Elm.
